Stanza five of Kirtan Soheila is by Guru Arjan, it really brings home the message of the rest of this 5 stanza poem, about being ready to embrace our ultimate end rather than fighting the inevitable.
Listen my friends I beg of you
Now is the time to serve the saints and earning merit here
you will live in bliss forever.
Each night and day brings this life closer to its dreaded end
seek out the Guru.
The shadows of your heart will leave,
Your soul will be received
This world is lost in evil and duality.
That man alone whom God awakens
to the nectar of his Name
comes to realize the truth of the indescribable Lord
Walk the path and do your best,
trust the Guru to do the rest
All will be healed from your past you’re going home to God at last
Oh Lord who knows the inner most reaches of our hearts and minds
who gives to each what we need through out all these days of our lives
Nanak begs for nothing more than to serve thy saints at your door.
